Doug Ford accused of selling 'bogus' party memberships

According to reports, Horwath, with her growing popularity, has enough time to get to the top there by June 7, if Doug Ford is unable to check NDP's forward momentum.

However, the most recent polls suggest the party has begun slipping - falling behind the NDP.

The NDP has been the focus of increasing attacks from both the Liberals and the Progressive Conservatives during the election campaign as polls suggest they are tied with the Tories for the most support. "Absolutely not", Wynne said at a campaign stop on Toronto's waterfront.

"We went through an appeals process and the appeal was totally dismissed", Ford said at a campaign stop at a metal fabrication company in Tillsonburg, about 30 kilometres southeast of London.

"People want change (but) they don't want an NDP government", Ford said in Toronto.

And Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne is spending the day in Toronto, where she's to make an announcement at Wattpad, visit a bakery and attend an evening rally. The decision folks have to make at this point is: "is that going to be Doug Ford or me?" "On June 7 there will be a new premier in the premier's chair".

Ford similarly framed the choice facing voters.

Her government has helped ensure strong business, a strong economy and a fairer society - accomplishments too important to abandon, Wynne said.

An affidavit attributed to Martino and provided by the Liberals says over the course of three days in November 2016 she spoke with 38 people who were on the membership list submitted by Surma's but who said they had either not signed a membership form or not paid a membership fee.

"I can do better", the Liberal leader says at the beginning of the ad. "Government isn't about winning power, it's using the power you're given to help".

"He's not laying it out for people", she said. Even among Conservative supporters, 59 per cent said Ford had run the best campaign.

A promised income tax cut would result in a almost $2.3 billion drop in provincial revenue, but questions about funding that pledge and many others have been met with vague promises of finding "efficiencies".

The Tories also held a separate news conference with two candidates to accuse the New Democrats of having several "radical" candidates, including September 11 conspiracy theorists and a woman who is against wearing a poppy on Remembrance Day.

The Liberals are also continuing to hammer the NDP on their platform funding, after Horwath admitted over the weekend that an error would leave them with a deficit that's $1.4 billion larger than originally planned.
